Quote: “She believed she could, so she did.” - R.S. Grey

Place I’ve traveled and why: My favorite place to travel is Fleming Island, Florida. My family has a condo there that provides the perfect place for relaxation!

Charity and why: One of my favorite charities is the Tim Tebow Foundation, due to the fact that they sponsor one amazing event known as a ‘Night to Shine’. This event casts light on those who need it the most. I was fortunate enough to participate in one of these nights during my first season as an MVC!

My dream job: My dream job is to be a Nurse Practioner on a Labor and Delivery unit.

On the top of my bucket list is: At the top of my bucket list is to travel my way through New Zealand.

My hero: My mother is my hero.

Name an inspiring/influential woman in your life: In addition to being my hero, my mother is the most inspiring and influential woman in my life. She is always the first to be there to support and encourage me, and every day shows me the meaning of hard work. 

How do you define empowered? Empowered means holding yourself with confidence and grace in all your endeavors and being willing to face any challenge put forth to you.

Where do you see yourself in five years? In 5 years, I hope to have completed grad school and be closer to pursuing my dream career.

Where are you in your family line up? I am the youngest of four children. I have two older sisters and an older brother.

What was your favorite subject in school? I always really enjoyed my science and health courses. This is the main reason that I have chosen to pursue a career in nursing!

Do you have any pets? I have a little 5-pound Mi-ki dog at home. Her name is Mitty and she is 14 years old.

What is your favorite workout tip? I like to encourage people to really find things that they enjoy doing to keep them active. Enjoying your workouts makes you that much more likely to be successful with your fitness goals!

My best beauty secret is: I like to get facials on a frequent basis to keep my skin at its healthiest. I have fallen in love with the HydraFacial provided by Expressions MD, here in the cities! It is the perfect fix to give my skin that extra glow for game-day.

Why did you decide to audition to become an MVC? I had known a few girls from back home that had auditioned/been a part of the organization and I was really impressed by the grace and charitable nature of the women involved. I am fortunate enough to now be surrounded by this group of women, and get to do my part in giving back to the community.

What is your favorite memory as an MVC? My favorite memory as an MVC so far would have to be during our first home opener at U.S. Bank Stadium. I had goose bumps while standing center field during the national anthem, hearing the sold-out stadium sing together.

Most valued lesson learned as an MVC: I have learned to be present in every moment and embrace every opportunity put in front of me. 

Awards received as an MVC: 2016 SKOL Service Game Day Awards
